Our fee is £100 for a talk/lecture plus travelling expenses (40p per mile). If you require more than an hour and a half fee will be more.

We will bring plants along for demonstration. Most talks are with a hands-on approach and you will get to see and touch the real plants. Obviously during Winter months some of these talks will be digital.

Talks denoted D= Digital presentation. HO= Hands on live material usually March to November
